Our Data Storage Needs: Hard Drives, USB Flash Drive, SSD

By Edzon Abrera

Because there isn’t any day that we’re not facing our computers, we tend to get a little educated about computers at least a step at a time. Sometimes, it is really not that hard to know when something is wrong with our computer. For instance, when it is infected with a virus, a message will prompt announcing the said infection; and if we are lucky, our antivirus software will already take care of removing the virus.

But what if we didn’t get lucky, should we just hope that all our important files don’t get corrupted for whatever reason? Whether it is caused by a virus or not, we need to take care of our important files that are stored in our hard drives. Talk about proper data storage and back-up.

Indeed, when hard drive crashes, we are bound to lose our files in it (articles, photographs, music, videos, etc.). That is really a terrible ordeal for most of us who cherish and value our personal and sometimes work related files.

Losing all our important data is indeed something that’s quite unthinkable. It’s not something that most of us look forward to happen. However, it should be something that we should anticipate.

Indeed, the key is to be really prepared for the worst. To be really prepared means to anticipate that we may no longer be able to restore our files back after a crash. This fact should move us to do something so we can still have some access on our files. In our own little way, it should help us if we would do some file back-up.

It is really true then what they are saying about prevention – that it’s really better than any remedies we can think of. We can’t rely on any software that promises to recover any of our lost files later on because there are really instances where files could not be restored after a computer has crashed. Perhaps we can save copies of our essential files to a USB flash drive or to an external hard drive. These two would make a great source for data storage.

Some people would also consider having their PCs or laptops running on a solid state drive (SSD) because they say it’s great for data storage and performs way better than a hard disk drive. While this may be true, what would probably make people want to get stuck with their hard disk drives is the fact that it would cost them a lot to choose SSD for an upgrade or replacement. If we can afford such an SSD upgrade, why not go for it?
